Spine Health Information
Postural muscle weakness is a primary cause of back and neck pain. Prolonged sitting such as driving and computer use result in muscle spasm, guarding, and deconditioning.
At Healthy Beings we have chosen to utilize the MedX Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines for our clients. MedX is recognized as the Gold Standard for treating and reducing chronic spinal pain and dysfunction.
LOW BACK & NECK STRENGTH TRAINING
Healthy Beings offers a unique strengthening program for people suffering with low back and neck pain using MedX Lumbar and Cervical Extensions Machines. The Healthy Beings spine strengthening program focuses on restoring strength and range of motion to the low back and neck regions. This is done by isolating and targeting the muscle groups supporting your low back and neck with your safety and goals in mind.
MedX Spinal Testing
The state-of-the-art computerized MedX medical testing and strengthening equipment is used to test then treat patients with neck and/or low back pain as well as limited range of motion resulting from long-term pain and dysfunction. MedX’s data recording and processing software allows operators to safely and accurately determine a patient’s physical limitations and show improvements in neck and back strength. The software calculates accurate range of motion and muscle strength at numerous joint positions by factoring out torso mass, stored energy, tissue compression and/or joint elasticity, and a lack of reasonable effort by the patient. Reports can be generated showing comparisons between age-matched and/or gender-matched norms.
What makes these machines so special? Isolation!
The MedX Cervical Extension Machine is highly reliable and specific in determining cervical extension strength and providing dynamic resistance training. For accurte testing, the MedX machine will isolate the neck muscles that support the cervical spine by supporting the chest and torso.
The MedX Lumbar Extension Machine is highly reliable and specific in determining low back extension strength and providing dynamic resistance training. The software calculates accurate range of motion and muscle strength at numerous joint positions. MedX will measure your strength at standardized test points within your pain-free range of motion.
The ingenuity behind MedX’s success in helping patients become pain free and regain functionality is its ability to isolate the deep muscles of the spine during strengthening exercises. Unlike other spine strengthening exercises that involve muscles in the arms, abdomen or legs, MedX targets only the muscles responsible for maintaining the alignment and anti-gravity properties of the spine. Poor spinal strength, alignment and compression due to spinal weakness lead to pain. Patients hoping to avoid surgery or those who have undergone surgeries for back and neck pain but are still suffering have been receiving positive results after only a few sessions with MedX. There is no need to suffer any longer.
The MedX Cervical Extension Machine is highly reliable and specific in determining cervical extension strength and providing dynamic resistance training. The software calculates accurate range of motion and muscle strength at numerous joint positions.
MedX back rehabilitation is highly effective due to its ability to truly isolate and strengthen specific areas of the lumbar spine. By training specific movements and not allowing abnormal compensations, the patient not only regains needed strength, but also learns to move their spine properly again.
